MSP at Camper Calling

Not sure how I feel about this, and I've got a camper van!

I wouldn't go for the whole weekend just to see them play a set to a probably indifferent crowd. Didn't they do a Carfest type thing last year?

Boys gotta earn I guess, good for them.

I don't like camping and don't care for festivals so not bothered, but hope the band put on a good show and work the crowd. The set list will be very easy to predict.

Well have fun if you're going and if you bring more new fans, hi there! Manic Street Preachers have more than what you'd want from a band and aren't going anywhere yet.
Did you have a nice time?

Looks like a good low key family friendly festival...the band can take the kids...camping and introducing the great outdoors I am all for....though I do remember Nicky throwing one of his sparkly bombs James's way for looking like a rambler once....

"There is a pleasure in the pathless woods,
There is a rapture on the lonely shore
There is society, where none intrudes,
By the deep sea, and music in its roar:
I love not man the less, but Nature more," - Byron

'I must go down to the seas again, for the call of the running tide
Is a wild call and a clear call that may not be denied;
And all I ask is a windy day with the white clouds flying,
And the flung spray and the blown spume, and the sea-gulls crying.' (from Sea Fever - John Masefield)

"Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul
And sings the tune without the words
And never stops at all" - Emily Dickinson
